Wes is focused on leading Vault’s strategic efforts as the nation’s leading accounting and research firm for nonprofits and associations. He is committed to positioning Vault’s integrated specialized services to provide best-in-class solutions to our partners in achieving their missions.

More than twenty years ago, Wes gained an appreciation for the nonprofit community. That appreciation then promptly became a passion, and Wes began dedicating his career to serving this community.

Wes brings decades worth of experience understanding the unique needs of nonprofit organizations gained through his various client service roles in outsourced accounting, CFO, and executive advisory and consulting services to help organizations navigate business challenges facing them today. Wes primarily focuses on charitable, educational, social service, and membership organizations.

Wes shares his technical acumen by frequently writing or presenting on issues relating to nonprofit organizations and accounting-related topics. This commitment is further reflected through his continual professional education focused on the nonprofit community and demonstrated with the completion of the Not-for-Profit Certificate program by the American Institute of CPAs.

Today, he is proud to continue working alongside the nonprofit community while simultaneously building a legacy for Vault’s dynamic professionals. He is steadfast in delivering on Vault’s core values and the firm’s strategic goals while never losing sight of the service commitment to our partners. As a leader, Wes is dedicated to building a strong collaborative, innovative, and belonging culture, providing the team with personal and professional growth opportunities.

Wes enjoys traveling with his wife to explore all seven continents. To this day, they visited 30+ countries over four continents.
